HALF OFF WINE BOTTLE
HAPPY HOURS IN AUSTIN

Sharing wine with people means something different for everyone. For us, it’s educational—travel and history in a glass!—as well as a really lovely social ritual. We’ve traveled quite a bit in Europe and enjoying wine with friends is such a regular activity, and not just on weekends. We continue to feel inspired by that lifestyle, which seems to prioritize connections and time spent with people. We’ve been very lucky to be welcomed so warmly by the Austin wine community in this pursuit and to have friends who are always happy to indulge us in raising a glass.

This lifestyle can get expensive, though! If you have Champagne tastes on a beer budget, we’re with you! We’ve become pretty knowledgeable when it comes to finding the best wine happy hours, retail spots, events, and wine sharing groups so that we can try high-quality wines every week without feeling like we have to save up afterward to make up for it.

As one of our posts for this year’s Austin Food Blogger Alliance City Guide, here are some of the best places to get half off bottles of wine, with enough places for you to get your fill every night of the week! Be sure to check out the other posts in the Guide for the most comprehensive Austin foodie roundup, and just in time for SX and patio weather’s arrival, too!
